Hot! MTL: Cookin’ Cornbread Romper

It was only a matter of time before I did a romper. I have to say that I love rompers, although I don't have the guts to pull off a really short one. When I saw this one on Modcloth, I knew that I had to use it for an inspiration for a MTL. Even if I won't wear it, someone should take it on!

The original romper is a knit. However, if you're not comfortable working with knits, I've provided a cotton non-stretch alternative. The pattern works for both types of fabrics. Yay!


Original Inspiration



  • For the the flouncy little accent, cut one or two bow-tie patterns on the fold, fold them over and attach.

  1. McCall’s really needs to work on the styling for their pattern covers don’t they?

  2. So cute! I think McCall’s should hire you as a stylist!

  3. Thats why I like the pre-pattern photography envelopes of the pre 60s. No hideous fabric choices to obscure the potential of the pattern.

  4. This has got to be my fave MTL so far! Thanks for the heads up Mena!
    Honesty $99 for a romper? OMG why do people pay so much!?
